Easter 6, Year B, 2021-05-09

Acts 10:44-48, Psalm 98, 1 John 5:1-6, John 15:9-17

 

Acts 10:44-48

  • 45 “astounded” (literally, no longer standing) Should the Jewish Christians with Peter have been astounded? Do we hold similar prejudice against groups and denominations today?

  • Peter’s listeners received the Holy Spirit, then were baptized. Is that the usual order of events in Acts?

  • 44, 45 “fell upon” “poured out on” Is the giving and receiving of the Holy Spirit different today than in Peter’s day?

 

Psalm 98

  • One way to outline Psalm 98 is to find two separate calls to worship with each call being followed by a justification for the call. Using that criteria, develop an outline for Psalm 98.

  • Do the two calls + justifications have different foci?

 

1 John 5:1-6

  • 1 Is “everyone who believes” and “everyone who loves” the same person?

  • 3 “His commandments are not burdensome” Do you agree?

  • 4, 5 “conquers the world” Is the world hostile to God’s children?

  • 6 What do “water” and “blood” represent? If some believed the concept “with the water only,” what exactly did they believe, and who are they that believed it?

 

John 15:9-17

  • 16 “I chose you” According to this passage, for what purposes did Jesus choose his disciples? (For example, if He chose us to be friends, what is the nature of that friendship?)

He Has Risen!

"Don't be alarmed," he said.  "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.  He has risen!  He is not here.  See the place where they laid Him.  But go, tell his disciples and Peter, "He is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him, just as he told you."  (Mark 16:6-7)

This Easter season, we are so grateful that Jesus goes ahead of us and we see Him in our world.  Even during difficult chapters, we are surrounded by His love.  We are also reminded that Jesus calls us to BE Him in our world. We can surround others with His love.

Let us prayerfully consider how we can serve those in need and to be the hands and feet of our Risen Lord.  Just as He told us!
